Global climate monitoring, including water and greenhouse-gas fluxes, supports the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and implementation of the Paris Agreement. While observations are the focus of National Meteorological and Hydrological Services, aspects of climate-related policy are covered by many different government departments.
